into the minds of american voters how he would handle women's health issues, the economy. i couldn't say how he would pay for the $5 trillion tax cut the republicans put forward for the wealthiest americans. one of your panelists said if you read through the transcript on issue after issue, you saw vice president biden have command of the issue. you saw an empty suit when it came to paul ryan. >> let me ask about one example where there seems to be some consensus joe biden made a misstep. it was the question about libya last night. take a listen. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. by the way, at the time, we were told exactly, we said exactly what the intelligence community told us, that they knew. >> the romney campaign released this statement saying biden wrongly stated that the administration was not aware of requests for more security from our diplomatic facilities in libya, but we now know from the sworn testimony of two u.s. security officials who were stationed in libya, that there were repeated requests for more security in the

strokes. we have all been told this is an economy election but the foreign policy discussions have really been bubbling given when's going on in the middle east and africa. another way that governor romney sets a presidential tone, what should we expect today? >> well, i suspect that candidate will talk in broad strokes. he's already indicated that he wants to challenge the president on what happened in lib why and whether there was enough security. he's made clear he's using tough language against rush why and china and he is talked about the economic problems in europe, as well. the problem for mitt romney is that in many cases it's not just what happened during his trip to europe and the middle east. it's really the reaction and some of the gaffes he's made on foreign policy. in referring to spain, for example, as overspending as the source of the problem when in fact it was the property bubble. germany and scandinavian countries spend more than the spanish have. we misunderstood that problem. he's annoyed the british over security and alienated the russians talking about toughening th

, yellow, a menace to our economy. mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about, it's sesame street. >> i want to bring in anne kornblut, deputy national politics editor for "washington post," and "usa today" politics reporter jackie kucinich. good morning. >> good morning. >> good to see you both. >> good morning. >> anne, let me start with you. there are a number of polls that show nationally a number of different things. what's the big picture here? is it that this is still the horse race? >> i think that's exactly the takeaway, that regardless of what the variations may be in a couple of the, really, the big two polls you mentioned, gallup and pew, it's a close race. i think there was a perception coming out of the conventions and particularly with obama getting something of a bounce going into the debates that obama had a clear edge and that, in fact, it would be very hard to turn this around for romney in the final weeks. what we're seeing now i think is that may not be the case and the october surprise everyone always talks about is, in fact, that we're back w

for in this economy. they would like for president obama to have a different plan after we have four years of the worst economy since the great depression. so to some extent i see it as the politics of diversion from what is the real issue. and the issue is you've got 23 million of our fellow country men who can't find full-time work who want it and are having trouble paying their utility bills, putting gas in the car and figuring out how can i ever send my kids to college. we got one in send on food stamps according to the send sis bureau, half of america is now either in poverty or near poverty, and yet the president only offers us a tax increase on small businesses. >> let me ask you about taxes -- >> the real issue about change is the president going to change to pro growth economic policies and there has been no change whatsoever in what mitt romney and paul ryan want to do as far as making the tax code there fair, flatter, simpler, more competitive. >> let me ask you about this. the deduction he favored ranged from make up a number to following bowles simpson as a model. and take the

't think that would have a disastrous effect on the economy as long as we look like we are making progress and reaching some kind of an agreement. >> well, given the players tomorrow, i'm -- assuming we are going to hear quite a bit about taxes and other financial issues. let me just get your overall take since it is in your state, beautiful place, danville, kentucky? if the pressure really -- is it on, joe biden, because of the first presidential debate? >> well, you know, i don't think anybody -- anywhere can talk about the implications of the economy on hard working families better than joe biden can. that's his natural -- that's his natural style. i don't think the pressure is on him. i think the pressure is going to being on paul ryan and -- either walking away from his budget proposals, denying he ever made them or -- in saying that in standing for him. we want to -- american peel want to standup people. so far the romney and ryan people have not been willing to stand up for the things that they have been espousing a long time. i think there's more pressure on paul ryan than vice pre
